Bogota, March 21 (IANS) Colombia’s coffee production in 2007 reached 786 million kg, the highest since 1995, the National Federation of Coffee growers said. The federation sources said Thursday that the production had been achieved without increasing the cultivated area for the coffee crop, EFE news agency reported Friday.
Coffee production in February 2008 was 66 million kg and sources said that the production increase had come as a result of the so-called continuous plan for the renewal of coffee plantations.
Colombia has more than 500,000 coffee growers and coffee production is the main source of income for more than two million people in the country.
